Animal Athletes: Grab the Tail

Ages: 6 and up
Location: Outside

This game works well with a minimum of 10 players, all of whom have a tail! (Tails can be created with a handkerchief, piece of cloth or ribbon tucked into the back of each player’s pants.)

  1. All the players run freely around the playground trying to take tails from the other players while trying not to have their own tails taken away.
  2. Each time a player succeeds in grabbing a tail, she will add it to her own at the back of her pants.
  3. The game is over when most players have lost their tails or a time limit expires.
